The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope

October is the best month for spooky games, and Supermassive Games is here to make it even scarier. The second installment of their highly popular horror franchise is finally here. The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope is the second of eight stories told by the mysterious Curator. This time a group of college students finds themselves stranded in the mysterious town of Little Hope, which has connections with witch-hunting. Things seem to be going okay until the group witnesses the execution of settlers who look exactly like them. They must uncover the root of all the evil that has infested Little Hope in order to make it back out alive. The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan was one of those horror games that continued to keep me on the edge of our seat. We have such high hopes that the next installment will do the same.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope will arrive on October 30, 2020 for PC through Steam, PS4, and Xbox One.
